Volunteeer Opportunities with NW Stream Center

The Ghastly Gourmet: On Saturday, March 16 at 1 pm, the Adopt A Stream Foundation (AASF) presents the Ghastly Gourmet – a lively show about Turkey Vultures. The star of the show is Aura, who will be on the arm of the Vulture Lady, Barbara Ogaard, from the Sarvey Wildlife Care Center. Ogaard, the Vulture Lady (whose other pseudonym is the Bat Lady) will entertain and, just maybe, gross you out with all kinds of “must know vulture facts.” Not just their choice of foods, how their digestive system works, and other ghastly tidbits, but turkey vulture family life as well. The Vulture Lady and Aura will reveal the life history of turkey vultures who can live to be 24 years old, and a lot of cool science about these high flyers that have been observed by airline pilots cruising above 20,000 feet! Attend this event, and you will gain a great appreciation for this bird whose scientific name is Cathartes aura: Latin for “cleansing breeze.”Advance reservations are required by calling 425-315-8592; $5 AASF members; $7 non-members.

Become a MEOW Guardian Angel: A "Guardian Angel" is a person who cares deeply for an adult cat or cats, but isn't in the position to adopt them. This person pre-pays the adoption fee so that when someone is interested in adopting a cat or cats, the fee is waived. At any given time, MEOW has many adult cats who have Guardian Angels, blessed by the person who wants them to find a home, there will be no adoption fee.

Vouchers for Free Public Spay/Neuter Surgeries Available through MEOW: Thanks to grant funds received, MEOW continues to provide needed spay/neuter surgery support to those in our community. Since receiving their first grant mid 2010, they have funded over 2400 spay/neuter surgeries. Funds are available for dogs, feral or free-roaming cats, cats belonging to anyone needing financial assistance, and cats who qualify for their Toms & Moms program. While MEOW has often provided monetary support for community members needing financial assistance or those managing feral cat colonies, these additional grant funds help them do more.
